Japanese mash up of two SF classics
First half is similar to "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and second half is like "When Worlds Collide". Quite a decent production for the first two acts, but the third act is debilitated by a major plot contrivance (kidnapping of a scientist) in a vain attempt to generate some suspense. The one-eyed star aliens are a bit ridiculous as well, of course, but I guess they didn't want to scare the kids too much.

Pretty decent flick.
The quality of the print is well worn, but the movie itself was a bit better than your standard alien sci-fi fare. The dubbing wasn't cringeworthy either.
